For 25 years, Ronn Moss was the face of "The Bold and the Beautiful." As the show's premier leading man, fashion designer Ridge Forrester, Moss and his chiseled looks dominated the half-hour soap as Ridge waffled back and forth between two women for years on end — Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Taylor Hayes (then played by Hunter Tylo).

In 2012, Moss shocked fans when he opted to leave the soap he had called home since 1987. In an exit interview with Entertainment Weekly, Moss said that money had something to do with his decision. However, it wasn't the only contributing factor.

"I've been doing this for 25 years," Moss said at the time. "How many shows — how many jobs — last that long? I felt that I needed to go in this new direction to give myself the chance to do all the creative things that I haven't had a chance to do in 25 years, because I've dedicated so much of my life to this." Moss also said, "I am not shunning the 25 years, but I'm embracing it. I'm embracing it and being grateful for it and being grateful for them."
